Description

Objective. To examine the usefulness of the PainCQ-33 survey as a measure of interdisciplinary pain management care based on the comments offered by older nursing home residents with chronic pain. Background. Residents have attitudes and beliefs about their pain condition and pain treatment, which can interfere with pain management care. Measures currently in place to assess how nursing home residents perceive their pain management care tend to be vague, and not able to identify the subjective nature of how pain management care is perceived. To date, no measures exist that can identify how older nursing home residents perceive their interdisciplinary pain management care. Methods. Focus groups were conducted at two nursing homes. A moderator used an interview guide developed with items from the PainCQ-33 survey. During each focus group, residents expressed how they perceived their pain management care. Transcripts and field notes from the focus group discussions were analyzed using descriptive content analysis. Results. Four themes emerged from the focus groups: (1) life with chronic pain, (2) how chronic pain defines me, (3) those who help manage my chronic pain, and (4) what works in managing my chronic pain. Conclusion. The PainCQ-33 survey has proven to be a useful tool for identifying how pain management care is perceived, which will help clinicians in developing resident-specific pain management care strategies. Grants. This research was partially funded by a grant from the Mark Diamond Research Fund managed by Director Sierra Adare-Tasiwoopa ápi. The grant covered survey materials and statistical software. This research was also partially funded by the Shirley D. DeVoe Doctoral Dissertation Award, which covered additional expenses including transcription software
